Series 9: Transition to Digital in Emergencies: What Lessons can be Learned?

The crisis situation brought about by Covid-19 caused a shockwave in the world of education. Everyone went into remote mode in a few weeks. It is important to look into this reality and start to better understand its effects for teaching in general and teaching with digital tools in particular. What will be the consequences of this ultra-rapid transition? Can distance education benefit from it or will it be more threatened than ever?
